Trump announces new sanctions on Iran

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he had informed Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin of further sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran's alleged involvement in attacks on Saudi oil facilities. "I have just ordered the Treasury secretary to significantly increase sanctions on Iran!"

The move comes after Washington accused Iran of being behind recent attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities. Tehran has denied the allegations and claimed the rebels carried out the attacks as a "warning" to Riyadh to stop the war in Yemen. Earlier, Trump considered the military response as soon as the Saudi investigation determined who was responsible for the incidents, but he also insisted he wanted to avoid war if possible.
